Bonjour Étienne
Very interesting and could surely be adapted to work on a website as a front-end to Overpass.
I made a query to extract place nodes for a complete Country.
This works nicely with search through Nominatim. Just a little problem encountered. The timeout was 25 seconds. Too short for big queries.  Pierre

One question, how often the data is getting updated from OSM server?

It depends of the server you choose.
The main server (overpass-api.de), it's mainly less than 2 minutes.
You can get the timestamp of the server in the parameters of the plugin.
Do you have a github page where I can submit issues and suggestion?

Yes, tickets are welcome :
But pythonner are welcome too ;-) 


Many thanks
Kind Regards,
Emir Hartato

- use an extent ofthe map canvas or an nominatim area
- use some actionsso as to edit in JOSM or open external links like wikipedia
- save your query
- change the defaultgeographic extent of a saved query
- apply somesymbology if possible
- use QuickOSM incomplexe models of QGIS Processing : fetching some datas thenreprojecte them for instance
-open a osm file byspecifying the OGR file 'osmconf'There is a littlevideo : https://vimeo.com/108737868I've developped thisproject during my internship at 3Liz : http://www.3liz.com/Etienne Trimaille
